Buying leftover 2017 Super Duty Diesel

So I am currently truck shopping and have been looking at pretty optioned out XLT Super Duty diesels. I came across a left over 2017 Lariat that is new with about 500 miles (took on trade and driven instead of trailered). Should I have any concerns due to the fact that it has been sitting for a while? The price is really good but if it’s going to come back and bite me the savings probably wouldn’t be worth it. Just looking for some opinions from you truck/diesel guys on here. Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't be worried about it sitting. If it fits your needs and you like the price you should own it. JMO.

I wouldn't be worried about it sitting, I would wonder why it was traded in with so low miles? Would it come with a full warranty just like new?

I believe he meant it was dealer traded and not owned by someone. I'd go for it.

Yes this is correct taking as a dealer trade. Truck is new and never been registered.

dealers do "dealer trades" all the time. Sometimes the other dealer can be several hundred miles away, and rather than placing it on a trailer, they hire a guy to drive it over and exchange vehicles. When I worked at a Chevy dealer as a kid, this happened a lot.

No issue with it....I'd check it out if it's a good deal!

I would make sure the tires are not flat spotted from sitting so long.
